Japan earthquake magnitude 5.0 felt in Tokyo
An M5.0 earthquake will be shrugged off by the folks in Japan.
- No tsunami alert has been issued.
- No injuries nor damage reported so far either.
- depth 84km
Quakes that cause widespread damage can trigger flows into yen as insurance claims, rebuilding costs etc. will be paid in the currency. As I said above though, this one will be shrugged off.
